Subject: new song?
I hadn't seen them do Down in the Bottom before. I'll have to do some history on this here tune.

Subject: Yeah, good SBD, but...
Listened to the first set & beginning of the second so far, and if this is the best that Nov. '84 had to offer (as the ratings would seem to indicate), then that had to be a pretty lackluster-at-best month.

2nd set: Do it in the Road: Really???

Parts of this show actually really suck. It wavers back and forth, but five stars? You gotta be kidding me!
Reviewer: gaZeebo - - December 10, 2013
Subject: GREAT sbd
Wow this sbd is definitely up there as one of the BEST sounding sbds on the whole archive. PHIL sounds amazing.

My favorite part of this show is the blistering Stranger > Cumberland that opens set II.

Subject: Miller's copy is the best! yet again!
New life to this already pretty decent sounding board!

Gotta love this quirky second set list.

In a year full of average shows, the Berkeley November run really reveals a small intimate side of the Dead that was often lost in daft large stadium shows. And thanks to Charlie's transfer, you feel like your there with the other lucky 3,500 people in winter of 84'.

Even the lovelight is standout, with a silly extended Bobby wrap!

BTW any show that opens with Alabama Getaway after 82' usually is a good sign.

Subject: subwoofer workout
This recording is a bass lover's dream. Like a lot of other PCM soundboards from this era (7-22-84, for instance), this will give your subwoofers a workout. The performance ain't too bad, either!
